Opportunism: When a person or company acts in opportunistic fashion they are seeking to benefit their own position through guile. It is clear based on the recent FSAI 's report that certain parties had been acting opportunistically with the production and supply of frozen beef burgers to the market. These findings were in relation to certain meat suppliers who had received meat from several different suppliers across Europe. This is evident with the false information they provided in relation to their products saying they were 100% beef, when in fact they contained certain percentages of horsemeat.
Just last year, over 135,000 horses were slaughtered with their meat being shipped to foreign seas (Finch). Horse meat has grown to be in very high demand in foreign countries which results in many slaughterhouses to be popping all over the world. Sadly in the United States, Canada, and Mexico is the main places in the world where these beautiful companion creatures are gathered, slaughtered, butchered and shipped off to foreign countries (Fact Sheet). There is much controversy on whether the slaughtering of horses should be allowed or not because the entire process that they go through is so bad and petrifying to the point where being dead is the best option that they can possibly have (Horse Slaughter-Wikipedia). Even though horse meat is in high demand for human consumption, it is inhuman because slaughterhouses use
However, the IRS disallowed the loss, claiming that the partnership was terminated in 1981, due to the distribution of the security deposits, so the loss could only be claimed in 1981. There was no gain in 1981 to offset the loss. In 1991, Goulder filed a claim under § 731(a) for the refund of $36,228.90 of the tax paid for the gain on the sale of building. He stated that because there wasn 't a continuation of the business, financial operation, or venture for the partnership in 1981 under §761, the partnership interest was terminated and liquidated in 1980. In the end, the estate prevail IRS.
Imagine ten years from now. The second budget has passed and we have converted to mercenaries, to defend our kidneys from HEC’s sharks and the power of the government is absolute. Our lives have become enslaved to the upcoming bills, all caused from the budget cuts of today. In essence the budget of today was a stepping stone to their grand scheme for the state to achieve dystopia, hence leading us, to the struggles between classes and society. Though such an idea may seem surreal and far too elaborate to contemplate for the government and the citizen, the speculative texts: 1984, Animal Farm, Elysium, Fahrenheit 451 and The Lord of the Flies depict how society can fall apart when too much power is given to those in charge.
The meat packing industry holds many serious safety and health hazards. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there was an average of 12.6 injuries or illnesses per 100 full time meatpacking employees, twice as high as the average for all U.S. manufacturing jobs. This number is believed to be too low as many workers injuries go unreported due to employee misinformation or intimidation. In novel Fast Food Nation, author Eric Schlosser gives the reader a behind the scenes look at what actually goes on in meatpacking plants in the chapter labeled as “The Most Dangerous Job.” During this experiment Schlosser uncovers the truth about how many injuries truly occur and how unsanitary these plants actually are.
There were many companies involved in it The issue came to light on January, 2013, by Irish food inspectors when they found the horse DNA in frozen Beef burgers sold in several Irish and British supermarkets. Subsequently, the British Commission on 8 February 2013 that a British company (Findus UK) had sales of beef lasagna supplied by a French company ( Comigel - Tavola Luxembourg ), which tests showed contained between 80-100% horsemeat, including Britain and Ireland. The analysis stated that 23 out of 27 samples of beef burgers also contained pig DNA; there were many companies who were involved in this unethical social
While the FSA was testing meat products for any horse meat it has been said a veterinarian drug tested positive for contamination. Despite the scandal growing in Europe U.S officials deny any contamination in their meat products. The scandal has become the next headline and many are raving about it. Many people were furious and felt betrayed that horse meat was in their beef while restaurants such as taco bell promised 100% all natural beef. Many corporations claims
Although people irrefutably need sustenance to survive, humans have developed an unbalanced reliance on creatures like cows and chickens as their main food source. “In the United States, about 35 million cows, 115 million pigs, and 9 trillion birds are killed for food each year” (Vegetarianism). This constant demand for meat illustrates the endless cycle of breeding animals and then slaughtering them. However, many first-world countries hold a surplus of provisions that supplies more than enough to feed their people, making the use of livestock pointless.
Schlosser took the time to research and give information about every aspect that pertains to fast food. He also gave a voice to the workers with leaves an impact on the reader. Letting employees work in terrible conditions, exposed to dangerous chemicals/gases and not training the employees enough to do the job well is pathetic on the part of these billion dollar companies. Although this book has not changed my eating habits drastically, it has made me a wiser consumer.
Super Cheesy “Where’s the Beef?” Clara Peller inquires. Likewise, Morgan Spurlock’s documentary Super Size Me, which Spurlock directed himself, leaves me asking the same question. Spurlock’s thesis argues that fast food is harmful to our health.
In Morgan Spurlock’s, “Supersize Me”(documentary) he takes on the mission to finding out whether or not Mcdonald’s food can actually be the reason for obesity in America, Even though pathos and ethos were used in Morgan Spurlock’s Supersize Me, Logos is the most effective due to the fact the he used people 's opinions over Mcdonald 's. Morgan Spurlock uses pathos, logos, and ethos to describe the harmful effects of Mcdonald’s food. During his quest in finding out whether or not eating Mcdonald’s food for thirty days can be bad for you, he asks for the help of three doctors. A
The middle of the chapter begins to go more in depth about the deadly germs living within the meat that most people consume on a daily basis. According to the book, foodborne illnesses are now more easily transmitted due to, feedlots, sanitation issues in slaughterhouses, and meat grinders. Although there is mass distribution of meat that may possibly be infected with dangerous bacteria, the government has no political influence on whether or not the meat will be recalled or not. Recalling meat is all up to the company and they most likely won’t recall their meat unless it is a very serious
Last year the Commision determined that the PCI certification didn 't demonstrate reasonable security in the case of an incident involving ID theft protection company LifeLock. The company was under order since 2010, when it settled a complaint about exaggerated advertising claims. LifeLock was ordered to pay $100 million in December in order to settle Federal Trade Commission contempt charges for violating the terms of the 2010 court order. Still, Ohlhausen claimed that the Commission lacked convincing evidence of a breach and thinks that the FTC approached the situation from the wrong angle.
We now receive a minuscule amount of funding from the state, and over 11 years ago, our fair was placed on a list called ‘Fairs on the Watch,’ which means, our fair has been losing money each and every year. I am proud to say that with your continued support and us watching our every penny, we have met the criteria for being removed from the list and the only way to accomplish that is to have two years of positive reserves. To this day there are 19 fairs that are in a potential financial
Now don’t get me a wrong, a good juicy cheeseburger is good every once in a while. Through the opening of these fast food restaurants, kids, adults, and students alike will be more tempted than ever to spend the money on a quick and easy meal. I can’t count the number of times my parents have gotten take out simply because they didn’t want to cook. Secondly, the prices of fresh food are at an all-time high. Currently, the prices of fresh eggs are higher than recent years because of a bird flu.
